Man’s mind is overpowered by this material world and threatened by worldly arts,
thus banishing devotion from his heart.
He is tantalized by cheap mysteries and physical joys and allows these to corrupt his mind,
which is a gift from God.
Misunderstanding the purpose of this life,
his attitude to life and its ultimate goal is wrong and thus is worried about death.
He thinks it is for man to cross dark boundaries, understand and improve this world (nature),
but his attempts are failures.
Bound in the coils of material nature, man fails to realize that Krishna,
the Supersoul of Reality, is his only hope.
All along I was in illusion, but now I have held the lotus feet of Krishna and thus will live and die in peace.
Inspired by love for the Creator of this world and the Giver of happiness,
I endeavor to chant the holy names of Krishna.
Nothing is impossible for Krishna and by His mercy, I shall endeavor to be his servant – yet another change in my life!
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare!
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare!
